P.O.E.M.S. - A true story
Based in Italy, the Poems Collective is not a company, but a group of friends, colleagues, professionals who come together, in 2021, to talk about a rare disease. The primary purpose is to raise awareness of this almost unknown problem and to encourage research. The choreographer Cristina Ruberto, the video designer Daniele Chatrian, the dancer Sara Ugorese tell about the Poems Syndrome by launching a fundamental message: everything can become Art, Art must not stop even in the darkest moments, it is a fundamental part of the human being, Art is a channel of supreme knowledge, of outburst, of denunciation. The “P.O.E.M.S. - A true story " won, in February 2022, the Honorable Mention at LIMFF (London International Monthly Film Festival) and is the first work of this collective

Surrender to Moving Forward (Section A)
Laurie DeVito & Dancers - founded in 1986. The pieces are autobiographical on some level and inspired by musical compositions which evoke emotions that evolve in corresponding images and shapes. “Surrender to Moving Forward” explores pulling oneself out of the abyss of profound grief due to loss of a loved one and taking the initial steps of moving forward in one’s life. “Looking Down Into Time” is based on the writings of an ancient Egyptian scholar. It explores thinking of time as a deep still pool rather than a fast flowing river. Where different sights and sound and voice and dreams were held in this deep pool where nothing was ever lost. The company has performed throughout NYC and major cities across the U.S.

"Our bodies allow us to experience life as a series of frames. Frameshift, as a video, is a single moment (frame) within the mind, the smallest unit of consciousness one can experience. This frame displays the transition between doubt and assuredness – The state between static and flow – The kindling of action – The spark of movement." Director: Nate Reed, Music/Concept: Stephen Boursalian (mocap), Video Synthesis: Arturo Brisindi (@hardscience).
